Site to Site VPN connect on initiation.

Unanswered Question
Jul 17th, 2007

We are setting up Site to Site VPNs over a 3g wireless network. We need for this site to sit only to connect when something is initiated from either side. Can i just set a timeout on each end? Is site to site over a 3g network possible?

I have this problem too.

Yes set your Phase 1 and Phase 2 settings as low as you can.

Yes it should be possible over a 3G network as we run our remote access VPN's over 3G. As long as the 3G network transports IP it's possible.
